Startups would typically look for an expert in the domain. You need to improve your skills-set first.

Lets start,
1)
"Strong communication, collaboration & interpersonal skills with proficiency in learning new technical concepts quickly and utilizing them in effective manner."

Please give an example where you got something accomplished with the above mentioned skills.

" Executed various academic projects using technologies such as HTML, Java and Microsoft Sql Server 2008"

You realize that various means multiples. Various is used when you've done far too many projects to put them in the resume. In yours, I just see 1 project. If you did do other projects, however small, I'd suggest you put them instead of unnecessary information like personal details and the declaration. Those are the most unnecessary information in any resume. As an employer, all I need is your name, permanent address, email and phone number. 3 of which you've already given in the header (which is correct). Even 4th can be accommodated here. What use do I have with your parents name? Wasting space in a resume is a sin! Time will come when you'd kill to place a couple of extra words but couldn't because it's overshooting 2 pages.

2) How are the below 2 statements different
"Enthusiasm for learning new technologies."
"Passion for learning new technologies."

3) How are the below things considered to be hobbies?
"Eating ,Watching Movies"
Let's suppose I am your prospective employer, how's your capability of eating or watching movies gonna help me unless you're interested in applying for food taster or movie critic which I doubt.
This is for everyone; Playing cricket or watching movie or just eating is not an hobby. An hobby would be something productive. So playing cricket can only be an hobby when you've played in some recognized tournaments and have credible awards. Traveling can be a hobby if you're visiting place of historic or some other kind of significance. Not going back and forth from home town.

As Kaustubh pointed out, you need to increase your skill set. Not only increase, but also need to showcase them. If you're really good at what you do, get involved in open source project. Then you can claim something realistic. If I am to employ someone, I'd anytime prefer a person who implemented a small module of a famous/important project than someone who implemented the complete ERP or any other cliche.

And of course, you can go for some placement oriented course. If you've some money to spend, this is a better way.

Agree to what Prototype has said above. Build skill set. There's no substitute for that. Not even distinction from the best college in the country. Be the master of a technology you love. People will kill each other to hire you.

Wonderful analysis, Prototype! I wish engineering college students were taught the basics.
